Oh my, oh dear; the wailing and gnashing of teeth over the difficult arithmetic!!

Well, I received some personalized coaching from my friend Romer!can (check him out, interesting fellow living in Romania).

Now I’ve tried activating the Akismet spam killer and deactivated the  arithmetic one. You shouldn’t have to stress yourselves anymore to comment at Mother Hen’s place.

    now, see? i was taking doses of gingko biloba… and feeling smarter by the comment. of course, simple math has never been a problem for me, per se, tho’, i confess i was a little put off when the verifier asked for the square root of pi. : P

    (this is how my 1st comment was supposed to read):

    (not that it matters, not that you care!)

  3. Jamie Dawn says:

    I used to have the word verfication thing activated at my blog. I took it off awhile ago, and I’ve not had much spam… so far. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

  4. Let’s do quadratics! Bueller, Beuller ….

  5. Monika says:

    I´ll juts gloss ove rthat post and just say hi.
    There were numbers and arithmetic and that is me out twice!
    So how´s the weather?

  6. FirstNations says:

    dang. i missed a lot!
    good thing i missed the math stuff, though. english major through and through, me.
    not a grammer major, though.
    ( i had the thyroid thang too in addition to the marathon stress and depression. interesting how that happens isnt it?)

  7. Fred says:

    Let’s hope this works!

  8. g says:

    No – no barbeque for me (I know you’re Canadian Kyah -(so in case you didn’t know that’s how we Americans often kick off Holidays) but I don’t stand on ceremony. Instead Tali had the flashcards out helping me to hone my math skills so I could be ready for your new verifier. Oh, well, you’ve just made us all the smarter. I was so proud of my ability to answer 0+9 !

  9. Margaret says:

    i had sure a fine note and lost it all due to math.
    maybe I’ll dribble a bit out.

    kitchen cabinets are gone new ones not here yet ,new golden maple floor is in,except stairs and baseboaed . I have several more walls to paint pale lilic before they go in.Everything in the house has been moved 10 times in the last 2wks,needless to say all the electronics have been unpluged.

    I caught up on the dark days of may ,now I hope they mellow into the good parts and funny parts for you .
    Joan and I had a great privillage to be able to nurse Dad in his last days and give him his wish to be at home and die surounded and supported by his family,both those who were there in body and those who were there in spirit

    I still cannot spell Mrs Plamer would be so disappointed with me

  10. kyahgirl says:

    Neva-never fear, I know how smart you are.

    JD-I know, the WV is a pain. I hope to avoid it.

    Mike-no, no, no. No quadratics. I’ll lose all my friends!

    Minka-HI 🙂 The weather is variable but ok.

    FN-you didn’t miss anything. Thanks for stopping in. I knew you were a kindred spirit.

    Fred-welcome back

    g-arithmetic is fun, fun, fun! 🙂 tali is a good helper.

    margaret=I don’t care if you can spell. I’m just glad you’re here. ♥

  11. Meow says:

    Ooooh, i have been a naughty girl, and haven’t been by too much lately.
    Sorry you’ve had so much spam … I did too, which is why I reactivated my word verification, it seems to have done the trick. I really want to turn it off again, but I’m not game !!
    I love your post about your twin … isn’t it amazing the people we meet in the blogosphere !! I have come across a couple of people who I really clicked with, and who are very similar to me. It is so much fun.
    Hope all is going well with you and your family.
    Hope, also, that you had a wonderful weekend.
    Take care, friend …. Meow

  12. Romerican says:

    Shall we try a little experiment to turn the italics off?

  13. frangelita says:

    Surprisingly hard to read all this italics. Like your twin, though.

  14. * tuts *

    Ohwuh! I wanted a go on the arithmetic anti-spam thingy.

  15. Kyahgirl says:

    I did’t put italics in the comments on purpose. I have to go try and figure out what I screwed up!!

  16. Kyahgirl says:

    hey, Romer!can, did you sort it out? What did you do? oh, I looked at the source. You just put a end italics code. Its that easy to impact someone else’s blog? weird.

  17. Kyahgirl says:

    I looked more closely, you know what? neva had an open italics start code up in her comment and it didn’t end until Romer!can put an end italics code in. I find this html thing so amazing.

    just ignore me, I’m blithering.

    Meow-thanks for visiting, its nice to see you again. Things are good here .How is winter in Melbourne?

    Romer!can, thanks!!

    Fran-sorry, fixed now

    IDV-here is a math test for you: please add 4 + 8 …feel better? No book yet? It should be there soon.

  18. Cowgirl says:

    No more italics!?

    Out, spam, out!

  19. Kyahgirl says:

    Cowgirl-If you want ’em, you can have ’em.
    Here are some italic hugs for you

  20. Doug says:

    Is there one where you run regressions?

  21. Kyahgirl says:

    Doug-so its regression you want now? Mike wants quadratics, IDV wants the sums back. Hmpf, I just can’t keep you guys happy. We’ll just have to stick with Akismet for awhile because I like the word kismet and I’m bossy and controlling. 🙂

  22. Barngoddess says:

    oh noooo math…lemme get a cheat sheet..

  23. Miz BoheMia says:

    Wow… I missed a bunch but like the good bohemian that I am I did my homework and am all caught up!

    Depression is something I know too well…. I often wondered how my husband made it through the darkness but there he was, my light at the end of the long, dark tunnel.

    I am amazed and oh so proud of you for your findings and for pulling through it!

    And I so loved the post on your cyber twin! Beautiful and yeah, isn’t the blogosphere just amazing?

    Phew! Glad I didn’t have to calculate my way into the comments! DANCIN’ THE DANCE ELECTRIC FO SHO!

  24. Sar says:

    Kyhagirl, I’ve been reading & catching up on your posts. You are so courageous for sharing your depression post and I’m proud of you for it. I’m glad you were able to recognize a situation you needed help with and were able to eventually find a good balance in your health and personal life.

    Now about this math. Math and I don’t get along. Here’s hoping it’s not a prerequisit to visiting you! 😉

  25. mig bardsley says:

    I was away so I missed the whole arithmetic thing…just as well, I’d have got hopelesly confused 🙂

  26. neva says:

    *blush*… you know, i had a feeling the whole “italics” thing was my fault. people like me should never try to comment quickly, we tend to forget unbelievably f*cking stupid silly things, like end tags. soooooo sorry! (you know, as long as you found my big freakin’ silly goof, Laura, feel free to fix it! of course, that would render many of the subsequent comments moot, so i guess it’s best to let my unbelievably f*cking stupid silly mistake stay as is!) too bad this template doesn’t let ya “preview” comments… then i could “check” my own work! hee hee!! : P

  27. Mo'a says:

    Hello this is me trying to comment on your blog again. I was not asked to do math or any other kind of verification…..just that when I klicked on submit comment mine did not come up…..tried several times same result….that is why I blamed broad band.
    My comments were brilliant….too bad they are lost somewhere in cyber space….I was brilliant….did I tell you the lost comments were brilliantly brilliant.

    Great posts. I admire your courage. Love that you found your long lost twin…..I am with Doug no doubt that she is your twin…..dang he is good….then again he probably had new math 🙂

  28. Jenna Howard says:

    I am caught up. I missed the math test? I always miss math tests. I have a sixth sense kinda thing.

    Funny about you and logophile. The thong thing had me laughing as I shoveled the chips in my mouth.

    Wow – that was quite the journey with your babies. Thanks for sharing it!

  29. karma says:

    honey i know i can always count on you

  30. The Phoenix says:

    I too haven’t had spam issues in a long time. One blogger on blogspot received over 100 spam in one day the moment he removed his word verification!

    Spam is the devil’s spawn.

  31. Stacy says:

    Oooo….I always really sucked at math.

    Ask me an English question instead, okay? 😉

  32. kyahgirl says:

    Barngoddess – you’re off the hook-no math!

    IDV-well done. Cor, blimey but you’re a smart one.

    Miz B-thanks for catching up. I appreciate your caring and support! Dance on my friend.

    Sar-thank you and no, I’m not going to make you do math!

    Garfer- eh?

    mig-you’d never be confused, I don’t belive it. nice to see you.

    Neva-now, don’t go getting worked up. it was an interesting learning experience!

    Mo’a-thanks for trying again and for your kind words!

    Jenna-yeah, I thought the thong thing was cute too. She’s such a twin eh?
    so, no math for you either, and thanks for your kind words.

    karma-of course!

    Phoenix-yes, this Akismet says it has capture 250 spam comments since I put it on.

    Stacy-ok, no math. Ok, an English question: Who wrote Frankenstein?

  33. Brian says:

    Ok, so I’ve been lurking. Sorry. Just was very busy at work after the long weekend. I too like thongs, they are so comfortable….on the feet!

  34. patry says:

    Love your yellow flowers…and the link to Romamerican.

  35. cube says:

    Spam is very annoying. I had to put in word verification when some idiot linked some porn sites to my blog. I was very mad about that.

  36. Kyahgirl says:

    Hi Brian-lurk all you like!

    Patry-welcome. The flowers are canola 🙂

    Cube- I bet you were mad. Its like vandalism.

  37. shayna says:

    I need help… I keep getting spammed… sex, porn, drugs… ahhhh!

  38. AP3 says:

    Math is stressful. Rabbit, rabbit!

  39. Stacy says:

    Mary Shelley!!!

    And I didn’t even have to Google that…I really did know it! 🙂

  40. Cowgirl says:

  48. Monika says:

    Isn´t it time for a new post? The numbers are still confusing me in case you gave me time to adjust!
    Lovely Friday to you!

  49. Brian says:

    Have a great weekend, and thanks for the comments. I decided that when I’m rich/famous, I’ll going to throw a big party for all my blogger friends and to give Kyahgirl a big belly rub.

  50. cube says:

    I’d be glad to help with the math stuff. I’ve always been good at math & it’s not because I’m a polyhedron… 😉

  51. Kyahgirl says:

    margaret-I’m glad the new kitchen is just about done and that it is entertaining you!

    monika-I know, I know. I’m working on it.

    thanks Brian-belly rubs are welcome.

    cube-you’re a smart polyhedron 🙂

  52. Katie says:

    ooh, give me an update (blog, or email, or whatever) on how the Askimet is working for you in a month or two? Please? I keep putting off updating my site for the latest WP release, but when I finally do, I am thinking of switching to that filter for the spamments and crap trackback (crapback?) that worms its way onto my site. It’s gotten better lately, since I banned any comments mention certain words that the spammers seem most intent on using, but I also found I had to ban a couple sites and isps outright. Sucks rocks, it does.
